This book has arrived in the shop as an advance copy so I had a read-through of it. The format is picture book and most of it is wordless, which ordinarily I don't enjoy, but this book has illustrations that I really like and it also has few pages with words (minimal, certainly) that set the scene better for me than going straight into pictures-only would. Then it's a tale about the imagination, or is it magic? Quite delightful.
